Each handbag is individually designed and constructed before being felted to create a unified look. I generally use merino wool fabric for the body of the handbag. Applique details are generally hand dyed cashmere fabric. I also use a reverse applique technique using hand painted merino wool. Shoulder straps tend to be about 22"-24". Each shoulder bag contains a pocket on the front, directly behind the flap. My bags are not lined as the inside is as attractive as the outside, and is sturdy enough to withstand wear. My handbags are secured either by a button or a magnetic snap.
